with the american people and be forthcoming, just like president obama had a conversation on race in 2008. mitt romney, it would serve him well to have that conversation with the american people and how he can best serve them. let me go back to this 47%. the reason that the 47% hits home to so many people is that these working americans are working two to three jobs. they are working them because they are aspiring for a better america. so when mitt romney says he didn't want to represent the 47%, he was going after the american democracy and say we may not be able to do it today but we're investing in our future for our children and ourselves. >> secretary reich, when you look at "the washington post" poll and voters were questioned about who they trust on issues, on medicare, president obama leads by 4%. the question of medicare, when i talk about it's about your mama, not obama, the question of the great society programs that really help people get by who are not looking for a handout but needed the government to help them, isn't this the core of what is really bothering a lot of americans ab
. americans are rejecting the tea party ideas, including their hatred of federal government. and this election could be the finalreaking point. president obama says that if he's fortunate enough to win a second term, his re-election will send a message to republicans that americans want his strategies, his sio the american people will speak on november 6th. the question is, will republicans listen? joining me now is former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, now an nbc political analyst and thank you both f comingn the show tonight. >> thank you, rev. >> governor rendell, let me go to you first. do republicans have a lot more at stake than just mitt romney in this elecon? >> there no question. first ofll, if mt roey t inthayth paril he wasn't a true conservative, he wasn't one of us. you can't test our strength until one of us runs for president. but the fallacy of that argument is goingo be in the senate and in the house. in the senate, listen to the states where the rublicans are in dr lgen seats. missouri, indiana, north dakota, arizona, and nevada and maine. >> right. >> six states where tea
a verdict on the legacy of the new deal and great society on social security, medicare, and, yes, obama care, which represents an extension of that legacy. and a new poll shows most americans, 52%, think the president best understand the economic problems they are having. only 39% say romney gets it. beyond all of the polls and spin, this election is not about obama. it's about your mama and the stakes couldn't be higher. joining me now is robyn wright, former labor secretary and economic's professor and teresa, president and ceo of latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for being here tonight. >> thank you, reverend. >> senator reich, let me start with you. you've been writing an article about how skewed is. is the word getting out to voters? >> undoubtedly, the voters are getting a sense that romney is not on their side. it's not just the policies and tax plan that gives the rich a huge benefit, at the same time cutting most of the programs that are for the poor and middle class and medicare, medicaid, and so forth. but it's also side remarks. for example, the videotape of romney
